Kickstart with serial console option fails

Reported by: SSMinnow Owned by:

It appears that there is a bug in the software when attempting to kickstart a vm guest and using the grub boot parameter 'console=ttyS0'. I have been using the following parameters:

Parameters: RHEL-6.2/vmlinuz initrd=RHEL-6.2/initrd.img ks= http://<ip of ks server>/profile/kick1.ks ksdevice=bootif noipv6 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,9600 BOOTIF=01-08-00-27-42-1a-aa

When I attempt to kickstart this vm guest with the above parameters I get the error - Segfault at 0 ip error. See for further documentation on the issue including the VBox.log file. I have narrowed the problem down by removing the parameters one by one and determined when the 'console=ttyS0,9600' option is included that the vm guest will not kickstart properly. I also tried 'console=ttyS0' and got the same results. RH support believes this may be a bug in simulating the console port correctly. I am using anaconda 13.21.149 in case that was not clear in the forum discussion. Let me know if there is anything else you need from me.
